The Fair committee is looking for early John Deere tractors or Waterloo Boys for this year's special feature.
The Ancaster Fair is September 20-23.

caser,
The gal who is organizing the show has been in touch with Grimsby and they have been a tremendous help. She is making contact with all the others you mentioned. She has big plans and she is making it a bigger and better show every year.

Some pictures from the Fair. Friday was a windy day and they had to shut the rides down, except for the merry-go-round! On Saturday, they set an all-time record for gate receipts. I think Sunday was a successful day also.
The John Deere feature worked out very well with a nice selection of makes. The LI is owned by Jim and Guy's Hart-Parr Haven.

This little AR was sold new right across the road from me and is now owned by next door neighbour. He remembers it coming to the farm from a dealer in Burford. Guy Heaslip provided the document.
The 730 also came from the same neighbour. It has electric start and was a real treat to operate.

There were two steamers, a Sawyer-Massey and a George White but I guess I only got pics on my phone? I also missed many other displays including Cerwin's excellent load of gas engines.
Next year's feature will be Farmall letter series tractors and all are welcome.
Ancaster Fair is growing into one of the nicest tractor shows. It is all thanks to head superstar wrangler Melanie Blum who makes sure everything works and works well.
Congratulations on another fine show.:salute:
Oh! Note in the last picture, the little grey building with the JD sign that was loaned by Crossroads Equipment. A local company loaned two small buildings and Melanie had the one with the JD sign as a JD museum. That worked out very well.
